Just what this Vegetarian needed!

Whilst browsing in the Chinese traditional medicine shop in search of some good old multi-vitamins, I was amused when the sales woman looked me up and down and then decided what I needed:
Lamb's Placenta, in a convenient capsule form.

At least its in convenient economy size capsules. Before such technology, you would have had to go to a field somewhere in the wilderness, find a lamb giving birth... and let's face it, that wouldn't be convenient at all.

That's true.... I would imagine fresh lamb's placenta would make a right mess of the medicine cabinet!

And let us not forget that it is in fact the Ewe who gives birth to the Lamb. There aren't many Lamb's giving birth's out there, being but babies themselves. Although, come to think of it, it could be argued that the new-born Lamb (who came into the world from a Ewe) actually owns the placenta, and not the mother as I would have thought.

Well clearly I didn't think this post out before typing it, so I'm going to quit by asking this question: "I wonder how the Lambs feel about their Placentas/Security Blankies being used in such a crash and commerical fashion?"
